Presenters

Here are just some of the faces that make
Hull Kingston radio what it is …

Darren Lethem

   Award winning event host, stage host, voiceover and freelance radio presenter, Darren Lethem is a Hull lad, born and bred, and has worked on local radio since 1997. Having previously worked at Viking FM, Magic 1161, KCFM, he now is at Hull Kingston Radio.  He is without doubt now one of the most recognisable voices on radio, and faces on stage across East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.  You Can hear him every Thursday 7-9 pm, and Sunday 8-10pm with his brilliant 80’s show C30C60C90 Go! Quite likes a bit of U2

Alright he’s not originally from Hull, but we won’t hold that against him. He is the other co-owner of Hull Kingston Radio.

Essex-born computer geek, and then some! Jon, studied at university here back in the early 2000s, liked the quaint ambience of what Hull offered and has made Hull his home ever since, so he’s practically ‘ull…though you couldn’t tell!

Jon has been involved with a few sporting projects in Hull and has been on and off the wireless around different parts of the country since 1997. He’s a fan of all areas of music; anything from Disco to Drum’n’Bass, through to U2, although his adoration of the 1980s does creep out more regularly than not. 

 

Pete Mills

We best say nice things about the gaffer! (Well one of them)

The Former award winning Viking FM & KCFM radio presenter will be brings his irreverent take on the world that only an ‘ull bloke could have!

He is the one responsible for having this mad idea to create Hull Kingston Radio in the first place way back in 2013! There is no truth in the rumour he set up the station so he could play more U2 on the radio…absolutely none.. sort of.
Once described by one of his former bosses as sounding like someone had thrown a lunatic in a radio studio.

Pete hosts The Jam Mon -Thurs 4-6pm, and commentates for the station on North Ferriby F.C.

pete tylerPete Tyler

Pete is no stranger to the airwaves in Hull. He grew up in Hull,  and has a love for rock music, which makes him a perfect fit for our Classic Rock Show every Saturday evening 6-8pm.
A keen Chelsea supporter (Everyone has a cross to bear),  cat lover, and a huge fan of the work of U2 , he also presents The Freshly Squeezed Breakfast Mon -Fri 7-9am… 

 

Wolfy O’Hare

Wolfy came through our hugely successful training programme. He had no idea of who or what U2 is and are until joining us, we have educated him …. in a fashion 

He had never presented on radio before until he came to us. He has a wonderful way with words, and a most magnificent beard!

Wolfy, is well known on the local cultural scene, he is a musician, a people’s poet, a player of really odd instruments, and has just taken on the role of our Hull Truck correspondent,, along side  hosting Liveline every Wednesday & Thursday 10-midday

 

Eve Mwaura

Eve describes herself  as “always left of centre and that’s right where she belongs”, which is why she probably fits in at Hull Kingston Radio!, and is another product of our highly successful presenter training course. Eve is just a great person to have around in the studio complex, and like many has come to appreciate the musical work of  Hewson, Evans, Mullen, & Clayton.

You can usually find Eve hosting Liveline  every Tuesday & Friday 10-Midday.

 

DAN MORFITT

Dan Morfitt is an experienced broadcaster, T.V. presenter, and although from this neck of the woods, he now resides in New Jersey, U.S.A.

He’s worked at a host of stations both local and national including Viking FM, Free Radio, Kerrang Radio, Radio Aire, Q Radio , and a stint at the BBC

But that’s not all he’s also done T.V. work, for T4 on the beach & That’s TV  in Manchester……. See he is a bit good! 

Dan originally hosted Not Live From Los Angeles, but he flitted to the big apple …. Well, the other side of the Hudson River, turn right at that big statue, you know the one… Just to host Not live from New York every Friday at 8pm and repeated Sunday at 4pm….. Dan loves our local music, indie anthems, and is a fully paid up member of the U2 fan club.
